Sprucing up the outside of your home is just like decorating the inside. Landscaping can give your home’s curb appeal a warm and sophisticated look, but it can also be one of the hardest decisions you make because there are many factors to consider. One thing is for certain though: mulch enhances the visual appeal and can serve a vital purpose.

Benefits of Mulch

  • Holds moisture (less watering)
  • Keeps plants warm and cool during extreme weather temperatures
  • Suppresses the growth of weeds
  • Buffers rainwater, preventing compacted and hard soil
  • Protects against soil-based diseases
  • Adds a polished look to landscaping


Materials include organic and inorganic and vary in color. It is best to decide where you are going to lay your mulch in order to determine which material is the best for that specific area. Below are ways in which you can use this around your home:

  • Around trees
  • Garden walkways/Outlining stepping stones
  • Planting beds
  • Highlighting Water features
  • Seating areas
  • Natural paths
  • Lining the driveway
  • Play area for children
